Souza’s research

“Souza’s research” group activity is focused on condensed-matter theory, using computational techniques to study the properties of materials from first principles. The group’s work often involves the development of new theoretical approaches and algorithms, and their application to problems of current interest, including methods to study insulators in finite electric field, as well as to construct localized Wannier orbitals for metals. Phenomena which arise from the interplay between the collective magnetic order in solids and the spin-orbit interaction inside the constituent atoms have been recently addressed as well.
